Nearly 9 minutes of storytelling, and not a single word of dialog.
Yeah, the bug fight was what first convinced me Samurai Jack was going to be something really special. It's still one of my favorite scenes of any show ever.
"No. There is no escape."
Other standout moments include the Shadow Ninja fight, the entire twenty-minute long Island of the Blind Archers episode, Evil Jack, the Aku-stic Rave, X9; fuck, the whole show is great!

I've always loved the lack of outlines in the art-style. It provides A BEAUTIFUL CONTRAST BETWEEN ALL THE DIFFERENT COLORS HINT HINT.

So, can we talk about the complexities of stereotyping? You could look at just about any scene here and condemn it as racist -- that African tribesman sure looked like a caricature -- except that he wouldn't even be recognizable as an African tribesman if they removed the "racist" characteristics. Put him in Dockers and a polo shirt, lighten up his skin so he looks like George Hamilton, is that any better?
I'm left with the sense that there is nothing inherently racist or stereotypical in how you depict people; context is the deciding factor. That said, unless you're Sarah Silverman, do NOT wear blackface; it just won't go well.

A reminder that the entire series, whole episodes and clips, is available on youtube. Awww yeahhhh.
Great show. A modern classic.
Oh. Once Proxtube unlocked it so my countrymen could enjoy it, I had the option to pay to see it.
Pfft. I bought the pilot movie on DVD years ago. They have my money. I'll just torrent the bug ep.
